13 people are interested
Do you have an interest in supporting people in their end-of-life journey? Are you compassionate, outgoing, and comfortable around death?
Suncrest Hospice has unique volunteer opportunities to be matched up with a patient with a terminal illness to offer social and emotional support. Volunteers build relationships with the patients and their families through regular visits and, if needed, will be available to sit vigil during the final moments of life.
We are looking for volunteers with training or experience as end of life doulas, hospice care, and/or Alzheimer's and dementia care.
To find out more, respond to this posting and our volunteer coordinator will be in touch to schedule an interview!
About Suncrest Hospice
4650 E Cotton Center Blvd, Phoenix, AZ 85040, US
Our mission is to provide the highest quality of care and customer service to our patients, their families and our referring sources. We believe that exceptional clinical care must include clear communication, a commitment to exceeding customer expectations, and a dedication to deliver services with passion and integrity. We are committed to maintaining a team comprised of the most talented and compassionate professionals in the industry. As our greatest asset, our team supports each other, takes on complete ownership of their duties, and continually seeks to enhance their personal character and education. Suncrest will reach its goals, under the directions of leaders who seek to serve, an office staff that supports, and a philosophy, that growth is only achieved through the greatest efforts of the entire team.
Hospice is not a "place" but a philosophy. The care provided by Suncrest Hospice does not focus on halting, delaying, or curing of an illness but rather on comfort. At the center of hospice care is the core belief that each of us has a right to die pain-free and with dignity.
Suncrest hospice provides exceptional care to their patients by qualified and compassionate physicians, nurses, aides, social workers, spiritual advisors, and volunteers. Our team is committed to our patients comfort and quality of life while also supporting the patient's family members. Our goal is to manage our patient's pain and symptoms, respond to the emotional, psychosocial and spiritual needs. We also provide education to caregivers on how to better care for our patients. In all of this, the volunteer has the opportunity to play an essential role within the team.
